Pastor Franklin Graham, one of the country’s most recognizable evangelical Christians, is facing a backlash for praising First Lady Melania Trump shortly after denouncing the alleged “sins” of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.
Graham on Friday wished Melania a happy birthday, declaring she was the “classiest first lady our country has ever had.”
His praise for the first lady comes a few days after he lashed out at Buttigieg, demanding that he repent and not “flaunt” being gay.
“Mayor Buttigieg says he’s a gay Christian. As a Christian I believe the Bible which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized. The Bible says marriage is between a man & a woman—not two men, not two women,” Graham tweeted.
Graham followers were quick to point out that Melania had posed in the nude several times as a model, sometimes depicting same-sex scenes with another woman.
